    Looks to be 2nd Infantry division.There should be an Indian head in the shield, although the shield is different for the 2nd..if its a rear seam it would be late ww2-Korea era.

    it has a nice look, I think it could be real and from the 1950's Korean War era

    I presume chickie the 2 pics you provided are not yours?I could be wrong but there's no texture on the lid,also there are area's of paint that look a little too glossy to be "US"made,this just doesn't give off a good vibe for me,I.M.H.O!!!!!!
